Fuller's ESB 500ml Bottle 8 Pack

Extra Special, 5.9% ABV


This famous strong ale is deep red in colour, with a powerful malt base complemented by a full array of hop flavours in perfect balance


By the time ESB launched in 1971, breweries had long been in the habit of producing an ‘ordinary’ bitter and a ‘special’. Our special was the irreplaceable London Pride so we broke the mould and added a pioneering third style: an extra special bitter, brewed to a stronger 5.5% ABV.

Since then, ESB has gone on to become a recognised beer style, imitated in breweries right across the world.

Brew Notes

Rich mahogany in colour, ESB tempts with aromas of orange marmalade, balanced by soft malt toffee. The hops impart grassy, peppery notes alongside hints of citrus fruit – while the Pale Ale and Crystal malts bring distinctive biscuity flavours. A smooth, delicate bitterness lingers on the palate to give a supreme finish.
